JUST A LITTLE NIGHTMARE FUEL FROM CULT FILM Great ‘The Forbidden Zone’

The first time I saw The Forbidden Zone I was a young teenage girl with a certain thirst for odd culture and a desire NOT to have to see Dirty Dancing ever again (which was de rigueur for girls my age at the time).

And, it didn’t hurt that I was a HUGE  Oingo Boingo fan (it’ll make sense in a minute) either.

You see, the original name of the band was The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, and was a musical theater act headed up by Danny Elfman’s brother Richard who was growing tired of the whole thing and wanted to concentrate on film making (hence, The Forbidden Zone).

Danny, who was more interested in getting out of musical theater and maybe doing something awesome like New Wave was going to take over the band and well, this movie kinda bridged the two divides from the old style (Cabaret) to the new style (Awesome). Oh, and it was Danny’s first time to score a movie and we know how that all turned out.

Anywho, this particular clip feature’s Susan Tyrrell (who play’s Queen Doris of the Sixth Dimension) singing the song Witch’s Egg that she wrote for the movie and gives you a good idea of how the film looks and feels.

I highly suggest it.

Video after the break.
